120 min • Roundhouse, London • June 5, 2014

Prince wows in his London show, where he performed two concerts in one night. Nothing compares to his Purple Highness.

Electric Lady • Janelle Monae

Released September 6, 2013
A daring fusion of nu funk/soul and sci-fi. Janelle Monae’s Metropolis is as much about robots as Animal Farm was about animals.

“The 20/20 Experience is probably one of the most impeccably produced albums I have ever heard. It’s not just slick, it’s intricate and beautiful, with a layer of soul that, if you scratch the surface of each song, bleeds through.”

Warrior • Ke$ha

November 30, 2012

Innovation and Reinvention, the key to sustaining a pop career. And Ke$ha proves she can do it, says Little Bastard.

“A young girl with a music obsession, who cut herself open and bleed out her funk driven influences, through her debut album, to the reissue titled Cannibal, and now with new album Warrior, Ke$ha has remained true to herself throughout, whilst still evolving in style.”
